String Cheese Incident is a band that I have always enjoyed, but never really got into collecting because I've spent way too much time exploring the Dead, Phish, and few others and didn't want to invest the time. I was wondering if anyone could suggest a few classic shows that would get me going. Thanks

Hey guys thanks for the help. I looked through a lot of shows and sampled some. I've always been amazed at how they are able to segue from one song or style into the next. One more question, I see Land's End is usually quite long. Would that sort of be like their Dark Star or Playing in the Band? That's not to say it sounds like the Dead or anything, just using that as a frame of reference.
